There may be no development without investing in the education and training of communities. Within this scope, VIDA has supported the training and empowerment of healthcare technical specialists as well as community actors and teachers alongside professional training (short and medium term courses) for adults. Our intervention has similarly provided backing to communities in the construction and rehabilitation of infrastructures.


Between 2004 and 2005, the elementary school of Ncassani was built by VIDA, aiming to be a place for children of Ncassani and other isolated villages at Matutuine’s disctrict to learn. Nowadays, this schools keeps being a place of learning and playing for 75 children. Justino is attending the last grade of elementary school and was one of the children who benefited from this project!
